A NEW Cupcake Inspirations Challenge-Challenge #575

Hey Crafty Friends!!

Today I am popping in with a card for our NEW Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #575. It is a theme challenge for the next two weeks-create a project with a RIBBON or a BOW!!

Below is the badge for Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #575

We have a sponsor for this challenge. I created my card with a Build a Garden: Grand Carnations Stamp/Stencil Set generously donated to us by our sponsor-Altenew!!!

They are one of my FAVORITE companies!! I actually have a subscription to their Paint a Flower series. I get a stamp set every month for $15.99. (no affiliate link)

I stamped the outline in Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and then stenciled the purple layers using the Grand Carnations Stencils and Altenew Enchanted Garden Mini Ink Cubes. I then used the Altenew Green Valley Mini Ink Cubes for the green layers. 

The shading at the top was done using the lightest two colors in theEnchanted Garden cube set-Wisteria and Hydrangea. I then used a dotted stamp from another company to create all the tiny splatters.

I stamped the sentiment from the Grand Carnations Set in Andromeda-the darkest purple in the Enchanted Garden cube set. I added some Glossy Accents over "friend," a die cut bow from my stash and random purple sequins. This card made me SO HAPPY!!!

For specific details on this round of the challenge and to see other cards by the Design Team, hop on over to the Cupcake Inspirations Blog

Altenew is sponsoring a random prize and I have an Altenew Stamp Wheel that I am giving away (US Players only-I cannot afford the shipping for international.) I bought two by mistake so one lucky, random US entry can win the wheel. For details, please see the blog post at Cupcake Inspirations Blog

That is all from me today. I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS Monday!!!
